Quotes

Vic: This is love: I secretly believe that I'm unlovable, and then I meet you. You tell me that you love me. I love you because you love me, but that has nothing to do with you; it's about you loving me. I only love you because I imagine myself unlovable, and you, against all odds, love me. And then, and some point, you do something that makes me think that you don't love me, which I'm more ready to believe than you loving me because I'm unlovable, so I stop loving you; I only love you because you ...

talky
15 October 2016 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Vic (Tracy Wright) and Kat (Molly Parker) are childhood friends and former rock duo Trigger. Vic is a recovering drug addict and trying to live a stable life in Toronto. There is a benefit tribute titled Women in Rock and the duo is being celebrated. Vic is leery of Kat's wavering sobriety and selling out in L.A. as Kat returns to attend the tribute. They reconnect after breaking up some ten years earlier.

It's a talkative movie with Wright and Parker. There is a constant waiting for a reveal of what happened to their relationship. It doesn't necessarily satisfy in that sense but there is a surprise reveal. There are some solid relationship moments. It does lack something bigger or more dramatic. In the end, it's a shorter film that has a lot talk but some of it does go in circles.
